Jesus by A. N. Wilson

Book Description

The Jesus of Faith and the Jesus of History are two different beings, with two different stories. In this brilliant and bestselling biography, A. N. Wilson reappraises our readings of the Gospels and, with extraordinary insight and clarity, reinterprets the story of Jesus's birth, his life as a carpenter and the dramatic events surrounding his arrest and trial. Written with profound scepticism, A. N. Wilson's book triumphantly rescues Jesus from the tangles of Christian history, presenting us with a compelling portrait of the man behind the myth.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The announcement that A N Wilson, possibly the last survivor of that ancient trade, a man of letters, was to write a 'proper' biography of Jesus Christ gave rise to laughter, anxiety and gnashing of teeth, dependent on point of view; but in the main it was felt that the task was quite simply impossible. As it transpires the result is as the author intended, as near as possible the story of Jesus using the sources available. His success will undoubtedly be of little consolation to some devout Christians, and it should be said that the author is a recent apostate from that religion after a lifetime of belief. But the figure of Jesus that emerges is thoroughly sympathetic, if not quite the one we learnt about in Sunday School having been stripped of various dubious, if often biblical, accretions.
